So with all my pumpkin related fall baking lately I've been cracking into a healthy number of cans of pumpkin puree. And sometimes I have a bunch leftover.
So... if you have leftover pumpkin and a hungry little pooch running around your house, here's some tasty little dog treats you can whip up for your furry friend.
Clearly, this recipe is Cricket-approved.
There aren't any ingredients in these that you wouldn't eat so...confession time...I took a bite of one. They smelled so good coming out of the oven....
Let's just say...your dog will like them. You? Maybe not so much.
(adapted from allrecipes)
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon. If dough is too thick to stir at the end, knead together with hands until combined.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into about a 1/2 inch thick layer. Cut into shapes using a cookie cutter or biscuit cutter. Use a fork to poke holes in each cookie.
Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake about 20-25 minutes or until firm. Allow to cool before serving.
